UCLA sits atop the Pacific 12 Conference South Division standings (tied with Arizona State). The Bruins are looking down on USC — and, hey, what Bruin doesn't? No one, especially Coach Rick Neuheisel , is talking about football monopolies. UCLA has not been in this position in a long time, but with sixth-ranked Stanford coming up Saturday, there was no reason to deviate from the coach-speak. Neuheisel stuck to the "one game at a time" file card. Still, the Bruins have an opportunity.

Reporting from Corvallis, Ore. -- It's a worn-out phrase in football. "They came out in the second half and punched us in the mouth," UCLA running back Derrick Coleman said after a 27-19 victory over Oregon State on Saturday. Only Coleman meant that literally. "Really, my helmet came off one time, and I got hit in the mouth," he said. "The best way to take revenge is by winning. " The Bruins got downright Neanderthal in taking their pound of flesh. UCLA rushed for 211 yards.

UCLA quarterback Richard Brehaut and wide receiver Nelson Rosario carry vivid memories from their last visit to Oregon State's Reser Stadium. One would like to forget, the other would like to repeat. Brehaut's took place in one series. "It was my freshman year and it was, 'Let's put Richard in there; let's get him some snaps,'" Brehaut recalled, laughing. "I was a deer in the headlights. " That Bruins lost, 26-19, that Halloween Day in 2009, but Rosario was scary-good the whole game, with six receptions for 152 yards.

Both UCLA and Oregon State are hoping to use this Pacific 12 Conference opener as a springboard -- or at least as an antidote for what's been ailing them. UCLA is still stinging from last week's 49-20 loss to Texas at the Rose Bowl. Oregon State had last Saturday off after being routed 35-0 at Wisconsin. Staff writer Chris Foster examines the game's issues and matchups: Gloom and doom Oregon State defensive tackle Kevin Frahm told the Oregonian newspaper this week, "The vultures are circling the carcass" in Corvallis.

Running back Malcolm Jones , the Gatorade national player of the year as a senior at Westlake Village Oaks Christian High, appears headed to another season of limited action. Jones, a sophomore, played briefly against Texas and had one carry for six yards against Houston. Unless he is injured, he cannot redshirt. "You always want to get more time," Jones said. "It's just the way it goes. If I'm not playing as much as I would like, that's fine. I'm still only a sophomore.

Quarterback Brett Hundley says he is ready . . . no matter what UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel decides to do with him. Richard Brehaut was named the starter for this week's game at Oregon State, and received a large chunk of preparation time Tuesday. But Hundley, a freshman, has also seen his workload increase, leaving open the question: Will he or won't he? Neuheisel is weighing whether to have Hundley redshirt this year. UCLA is 1-2, and whether Neuheisel will be back for his fifth year has been left undecided by Athletic Director Dan Guerrero . But Neuheisel takes himself out that equation, saying, "Every decision I make not only has to be what's best for our team, but what's best for the individual.

UCLA already has a starting quarterback for Oregon State this week. So the Bruins are ahead of schedule. Richard Brehaut will start. Kevin Prince , who had three passes intercepted in a 49-20 loss to Texas on Saturday, will be in reserve. This is the latest shuffle for Coach Rick Neuheisel . Asked whether he had a No. 1 quarterback at this time, Neuheisel said, "I don't know if that's fair. I feel I have two quarterbacks ready to play. " So no one has claimed the No. 1 job and for the second time in as many weeks Neuheisel is making a change.

UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince , who sat out last week's game against San Jose State because of a sprained right shoulder, had three passes intercepted in the 49-20 loss to Texas on Saturday at the Rose Bowl. The picks ended UCLA's first three drives. It helped Texas jump out to a 21-0 lead and Prince was replaced by Richard Brehaut . "They were poor decisions," Prince said. "The first one was a poor throw. The second one I forced the ball when I felt pressure. The third one I should have taken the sack.

You know the old saying, it's not over until the fat lady sings or Tom Lasorda gives up on you. Well, with 12 minutes 29 seconds remaining on the Rose Bowl clock, Lasorda pronounced the UCLA football team goners and walked off the field. If Lasorda can't get a rise out of you, you're dead. The guy is 84. He makes the drive to the Bruins' Pasadena hotel Saturday morning, gives them everything he has in a pep talk, rides the team bus to the Rose Bowl, makes the Bruin Walk through the crowd sweating in his Dodgers sweater, and did I mention he's 84?

Kip Smith attempted one field goal Tuesday, banked the ball off the upright and through, and then walked to the training room. Just when it seemed UCLA's kicking problems were on better footing, a problem arises. Smith, who made both his field-goal attempts in the 27-17 victory over San Jose State on Saturday, did nothing the rest of practice. Coach Rick Neuheisel said Smith was "nursing a sore hip flexor and should be fine. " Still, punter Jeff Locke was dusting off his field-goal technique after practice.
